The Eric J. Smalls Memorial Scholarship was established by United Elite Basketball, a nonprofit youth basketball organization in memory of Eric’s participation as a player on the 3rd grade traveling basketball team. Eric Smalls was an energetic, vibrant young man with a great love for basketball. He lost his life on June 5, 2015 due to injuries sustained in a tragic car accident along with two of his little friends.
The scholarship is $1,000.00 to a deserving senior who plays and has a passion for basketball.
Each year, we invite the top scholarship applicants to attend the banquet, and announce the winner of the $1,000 scholarship.
For the past three years, there have been well-known guest speakers from the community and awesome musical and dance performances.
We are excited about our guest speaker for this year, and we hope you will attend.
Tickets are $25 each. All proceeds from banquet ticket sales go towards the Eric J. Smalls Memorial Scholarship.
The Eric J. Smalls Memorial Tournament hosted by United Elite Basketball is in memory of Eric’s participation as a player on the 3rd grade traveling basketball team.
